Featured experts included Antoine Moss, Ph.D., BlackEnterprise.com contributor and career coach; Cole Wiley, a Harvard Law graduate who’s changing the game in filmmaking; and  Mychal Denzel Smith, blogger and social social commentator for The Nation.

Each talked about the role of negative stereotypes and peer pressure, how to find a mentor, and steps to take in paving your own lane for a fulfilling career path.
